On PTSD and Its Symptoms
PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is classified as an anxiety disorder according to the Mayo Clinic and the American Psychiatric Association. PTSD is intensely troubling, frightening, and hard to live with. PTSD typically stems from a traumatizing event or set of events, such as an accident, assault, natural disaster, war, or death. Sufferers may experience intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety about things associated with the event, and general anxiety. This makes the person experience the trauma over and over, which makes recovery a long, arduous process.
